Impression heat embossing with stamps


 Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW!  Did you know that you can stamp into your heat embossing? Say what?! Yes, you read that right. This is an amazing way to step up your backgrounds, die-cuts of the focal point of your card. I'm showing you three (well 4, ones a tow-fer!) cards with this technique, so hopefully, this will inspire you to try and give it a go!

Impression heat embossing with stamps Tutorial:

To create the cards, you need to make heat embossed panels. First, ink smoosh your clear embossing ink down onto a card panel and make sure you get good coverage of ink. Next cover with an embossing powder of your choosing. 

For these first two cards which are a two-fer, I used Judith's Blush which is in collaboration with Alexendre Renke. For each heat embossed panel in today's post, you need to repeat this to add about 5 layers of embossing powders. 


Now the next step requires a stamping platform as you need to keep stamping in the same position. If you're using a red rubber stamp, remove the foam pad add your background. These two cards feature the Lover note stamp from Catherine Pooler Designs. 


Next, heat a portion of the embossed panel to melt and rewarm the powder. Quickly, close your MISTI door and apply a large amount of pressure to press the stamp into your embossing. 


When you open the door, you'll see an impression where you melted the powder. Now keep repeating this, moving where you heat up and stamp until the background is complete. 


When you use your heat gun, make sure you move it and it is heated up before you bring it to the panel in your MISTI. Also, make sure you have removed your foam pad as you don't want to melt this. You're not keeping the heat on your MISTI long enough to cause any damage, but you might want to risk assess it. 


Make sure you watch the video to find what mistake I made with this background, yet carried on with it anyway!


To turn this background into two cards, I die-cut the panel with the Simply Diamond Pink Freshstudio die and used both the positive and negative parts on each card. These cards were finished off with a layered die-cut using the Happy Birthday Sentiment Suite die set. 

Lastly, after finish the sentiments off with corresponding stamped sentiments, I added a few blue sequins to contrast with the soft pink embossing. 

For this card, I embossed a card panel with 5 layers of In The Navy embossing powder. Instead of using a rubber stamp with this card, I'm using the WOW! Layered hearts stamp set. 

As we will need to heat without the foam pad, you need to do a little preparation first. Position the hearts onto the panel with the foam pad in. Next, remove the foam pad. 

In order for the photopolymer stamps to stamp into the panel, we need to raise the panel back up, but with some cardstock stacked up.

Repeat as with the previous two cards but melting and warming the embossing and then stamp the hearts down. 

The photopolymer stamps will release from the heat embossing, though may need slightly more help compared to a red rubber stamp.



In addition, I also stamped a few of the hearts into the heart impressions and heat embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder. The panel was trimmed down and a sentiment added from the Round & Round stamp set from WOW! 


For this last card, I've kept it simple and again use a red rubber stamp. I used Oiled Slate embossing powder used to create the heat embossed panel.

To create texture, I've stamped with the Painted Stripe background from Catherine Pooler design. This impression is subtle with the Oiled slate embossing powder but works well!


Once the panel was complete, I used a nesting square die to trim this down and foam mount it onto a card. 
To complete the card, I added a Hello die-cut from Catherine Pooler designs as well as some stamped floral images. The stamp set used is Altenew Willowing Blossom and I use a selection of Catherine Pooler inks.

  1. Very clever technique using different embossing powders and the first three with more layers and impressing the stamp into it which looks great, and the first two using the positive and the negative of a die cut panel look terrific, then the pretty hearts impressed into the dark navy embossing and the added rose gold embossing looks so pretty over the top. Lastly the embossed background panel with the added stamped stripes of colour over the top and love the beautiful added flowers and large die cut sentiment in white which really stands out. A fantastic foursome Verity. x

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month! As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand. To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder. For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder. The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme. I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time. I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them. I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid! Here are brief instructions on how to make it: STEP ONE Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles a
